I have not even had time to think this morning. Actually, excuse me for a few more minutes – I have the last of the real coffee to gently sneak into my already-very-used cup before my boss strolls in that direction.
It never helps sleeping through one’s alarm by over an hour. For no reason, other than I like the sleep.
Or having two crazed puppies to pull out of the pool, stop from chewing up the garden, gently convince to stop eating my new shoes, and who still demand tummy tickles with those big adorable eyes & floppy paws.
Getting to work and promptly having a four-month child plumped into my arms while his delightful already-skinny mom prances about the office laughing at us Sloggers for The Man.
Or following up on many links so I can let you know some crime initiatives happening –
There is a mail going around right now requesting South Africans to drive with our car lights on, from 1st March (tomorrow already! Uh oh.) till the 7th (next Wednesday).
I am sure it is not going to have Mbeki quivering in his Union Building mahogany office (actually, I have no clue what type of wood Mbeki is surround by during his working hours). But at least it could be a united start to protesting. With each new initiative and more people spurred on, perhaps we will become more creative, become louder, become more demanding, and HOPEFULLY actually heard, respected and the relevant people will react accordingly!
That would be nice.
This protest is being held by STAND (Standing Together Against Needless Death) and OPAC (Ordinary People Against Crime).
Check out STAND’s website, and keep checking it out. Stay Aware, Stay Tuned In, and hopefully (always hopeful, I am) it will lead to benefits for us.
Watch the FNB ad at the RealSouthAfrica website.
In other news, yesterday evening I had great ego-inflating fun. I was able to help someone out with a topic they are investigating. What this meant for me was taking advantage of their company’s expense account by suiping on wine, and sprouting my opinions for about an hour solid. The poor lady did not even have a chance to ask if my glass could be refilled while I rattled away about THIS and THAT and OH, BUT THEN….!
Man, I could get used to doing that!
Then I strolled my way off to the movie house to FINALLY watch the acclaimed Blood Diamond.
But that is for another time, another post, another pot of fresh brewed coffee. I actually have to put in some work now – like finding Herpes people.
Man. I prefer the weeks when we get to discuss sex and sexual behaviour.
[On another note (and the mind goes here, there, and everywhere today!) I was wondering how many of you considered the POSSIBLE hypocrisy between this week’s Monday post, and last week’s Monday post.
Was it hypocritical?
I have been debating this with myself. But I do not think so. I believe that the disrespect that I was referring to last week goes far deeper than quietly admiring a person for their unique appearance. Plus, I do not think I showed any disrespect to the man I refer to on this blog as The Model, or to the men we quietly & subtly admired from afar on Saturday.
But I always have to consider this. Debate it. Check myself in case. And allow myself the chance to be wrong, and so open myself up to being told so.
Just had me thinking.]
